Stay Fresh

doughnutI was standing in a checkout line recently when a display caught my eye. It was trying to entice me to buy a small package of doughnuts.  The advertising slogan read, “Made Fresh”.

I suppose that statement was true. Is it even possible to make stale doughnuts?

The real question is this—Are the doughnuts fresh now? There was no telling how long it had been since the doughnuts were “made fresh”. There was no guarantee that they would taste as good now as they did on the day they were made.

When we gave our lives to Christ, he made us new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Only Jesus can make us fresh. However, it is up to us to make sure that we don’t get stale sitting on the shelf. We can stay fresh through prayer, Bible study, worship and serving others.

What other ways can you make sure you stay fresh?
